Omar Minaya met with Scott Boras and put a 3 year, $36M offer on the table Monday night, Ramon Hernandez Put Down The Gun has learned.  Minaya, reached for comment exclusively by our reporters in a rare off-the-cuff moment, said "Fuck it, I might as well.  K-rod?  Couldn't be had for less than 5 years, $75M.  What did I sign him for?  3 Years, $36M.  Oliver Perez?  A Scott Boras client - don't even think about bidding unless you're in the 5 Year, $70M range.  What did I sign him for?  3 Years, $36M.  I think I might have one more in me."
Mets fans everywhere are praying that Scott Boras is hit by lightning and Manny decides he won't play anywhere but Flushing, because fears are widespread that failing to sign Manny, Omar will turn his attention to Pedro Martinez - for 3 years, $36M.
"Why the fuck not?" said Omar Minaya
